    About our courses

    • Family learning courses are fun and informative sessions for children and their parents, adult family members or carers (up to two children per adult).
    • Some courses are for parents and carers only.
    • Courses are designed to develop your own skills and knowledge, while guiding you to support and encourage your child’s development and love of learning
    • The courses take place in our centres, schools, children’s centres and community centres across the borough.
    • There are new courses this year focusing on parenting and wellbeing.
    • All family learning courses have a small enrolment fee payable when you enrol, but you may be entitled to join for free if you receive benefits or are on a low income. If you are eligible please email your telephone number and photographic evidence to adultlearning@lewisham.gov.uk and someone will contact you to complete your enrolment.
